NO, NO, NO!!! DO NOT HIT THE END OF THE PULLER!!!
AGREE! I know this is common on some makes but on a Packard axle, hitting the end of the puller directly which would transmit inward force to the end of the axle is specifically cautioned against in the service manuals for the very reason JWL mentions. The SM isn't as refined as John in saying it will be damaged. It outright says the thrust block can shatter and to me that means destroyed not damaged.
Most have used the regular two ended knock piece that comes with the puller and hit the ends of that with a heavy hammer to tighten. The rotational shock is no worse than driving down the road. Let it sit and then come back after awhile and hit it again. I had one that took almost a day under increasing tension from the hammer before it popped free. Some have even resorted to a light application of heat on the hub to try and expand it a bit.
